2023 - 2024 General Cardiology Fellows

Yaanik Desai, MD

Yaanik grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and studied biomedical engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, where he conducted research in single-cell biology under Dr. Arjun Raj. He returned to Atlanta to attend medical school at Emory University, where he investigated outcomes from atrial fibrillation ablation and ICD extraction procedures under Dr. Faisal Merchant. He completed his internal medicine training at UCSF, where he studied the association between high-sensitivity troponin and cardiovascular outcomes under the mentorship of Dr. Rakesh Mishra and Dr. Nelson Schiller. He served as Chief Resident at UCSF from 2020-2021. He plans to pursue a career in academic cardiology, and he is broadly interested in the applications of deep learning in arrhythmia research.

Between her third and fourth years of medical school at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Jain pursued an MBA at Harvard Business School. She subsequently worked at Moderna Therapeutics and Flare Capital prior to starting internal medicine residency at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia. During residency, Dr. Jain was selected as a Silverman Fellow in Healthcare Innovation. In this capacity, she worked with clinical and data science partners to build and deploy the technological infrastructure to identify patients with certain cardiac conditions earlier in the course of their disease. Her research and entrepreneurial interests focus on the use of digital health and machine learning to reimagine healthcare delivery models and improve patient outcomes in cardiology.
